Why the rush to hire Pope? He would have still been an option a month from now. Kentucky couldn’t wait a week to see if Donovan was interested? Maybe something crazy could happen in the next few weeks that makes someone available or reconsider. Kentucky settled when there was still time to play the field.

They needed to move fast because it is very likely that the entire recruiting class is going to go with Cal or other places. They need a coach in to replenish the roster.
